BJP did nothing, but ‘change three CMs’, AAP on BJP in Uttarakhand

The Uttarakhand BJP in charge and union minister Prahlad Joshi had attacked the Aam Aadmi Party for ‘befooling the people’, while pointing out to the candidacy of Ajay Kothiyal. The BJP observed that APP was asking for votes with a retired soldier but they had earlier ‘insulted the country’s soldiers’ by asking proof for Balakot airstrikes. He also pointed out AAP’s promises on 300 units of free electricity, saying ‘I am sure people of Uttarakhand won’t fall for this party’s lies as they’re literate and politically aware”.

After the comments were made, the Uttarakhand state faction of AAP took to public with strong objection to what BJP had said. Rabindra Singh Anand, the state unit spokesperson of the party said in response, “it is the BJP which befooled the people in the last four and a half years of its tenure. It did nothing for development except changing three CMs. If any party can bring development in real terms, it is only the AAP”.

BJP leader and former chief minister Trivendra Singh rawat also lashed out at AAP’s ‘spiritual hub’ promise, saying the state was already a home for sacredness and described it as a ‘Dev bhumi’. He demanded the AAP should first visit the state and experience it.

The AAP in Uttarakhand will be contesting in all 70 seats and has chosen Col Ajay Kothiyal (retd) as their chief ministerial candidate. The party has asserted their confidence in the elections. The party has been pointing out that both the BJP and the Congress has failed the people of the state with their promises.

 THINKALAZHCHA NISHCHAYAM | MALAYALAM CINEMA REVIEW |

SATIRE DRIVEN, NON-MELODRAMATIC, FOCUSED, AND METICULOUSLY SCRIPTED; THIS MOVIE IS A WINNER THROUGH AND THROUGH!

How can one dislike a film that entertains throughout? In english, this movie title means ‘The engagement is on monday’.  There is no surprise in the plot line; all of it is revealed in the title.  The story is about the making of an engagement and the joys and troubles involved.  Senna Hegde pulls off a regular story with exceptional craft. The highlight of the film is its climax.  The climax offers no pomp and show, no tearful departures, no melodramatic breakdowns, no revolutions, no rebellions, no glamour, not even the promised engagement.This film is a must watch not because it is extraordinary, but because it is very ordinary, and the brilliance is entirely in the balance the filmmaker maintained throughout.

KURUP|MALAYALAM MOVIE| REVIEW|
KURUP, THE MOVIE; DULQUER’S ATTEMPT TO CONQUER CINEMASCOPE FILMMAKING LEAVES AUDIENCES EMOTIONLESS

THIS PERIOD MOVIE COMES WITH COMPLETE GRANDEUR; GRAND SETS, STYLE, A GOOD CAST, LEAVES NO STONE UNTURNED IN PRODUCTION, BUT FAILS IN ITS EDITING AND COMPOSITION. DQ DOES NOT BECOME KURUP, KURUP BECOMES DQ. 

Dulquer remains Dulquer, we recognize him and his methods in all his movies and he repeats himself once again.  The actor lacks gravitas in his dialogue delivery and intonation.  Can style and glamour make up for lack of method acting in a role like this?  Did we expect more?
